The Honda Shadow Aero features retro-inspired styling, including lots of chrome accents such as engine sidecovers, the rear brake pedal, the cylinder-head cover, and more. Its low seat height rounds out its laid back cruiser persona nicely. The Shadow Phantom features a blacked-out styling, including fenders, rims, twin shocks, headlight, and more. Its chrome spokes and exhaust pipes are the only major exceptions. Its rather muscular front end is augmented by its fat front tire which offers excellent road grip on winding roads, and adds to the Phantom’s overall aggressive appearance. The Shadow RS tips its hat to the Honda RS racing bike of the late 1970s and early 1980s. Although inspired by the flat track racing bike, the RS is equipped with the same cruiser motor that powers all the Shadow models.
